How to Install qBittorrent on OpenMediaVault 5

In this video we’ll take a look at how to install qBittorrent on OpenMediaVault 5 (OMV5).

We’ll use a different approach in this video than we have in previous videos to get qBittorrent installed on OMV5. This time we’ll use something called “Stacks”.

Get logged into your Portainer control panel. Open your local connection and then click “Stacks” in the left column.

Next, click “Add Stack”.

Name the Stack “qbittorrent” (without the quotes) and then copy and paste the following into the “Web editor” section:

---
version: "2"
services:
  qbittorrent:
    image: linuxserver/qbittorrent
    container_name: qbittorrent
    environment:
      - PUID=1000
      - PGID=1000
      - TZ=Europe/London
      - UMASK_SET=022
      - WEBUI_PORT=8080
    volumes:
      - /path/to/appdata/config:/config
      - /path/to/downloads:/downloads
    ports:
      - 6881:6881
      - 6881:6881/udp
      - 8080:8080
    restart: unless-stopped

You’ll need to change the “volumes” to point to the correct folders on your OMV server, but once you’ve done that, you can then click the blue “Deploy the stack” button near the bottom of the page.

If, for some reason, you need to change the port where qBittorrent lives, you’ll change the WEBUI_PORT and the “8080:8080” to the appropriate port number. For instance, if you wanted to run the application on port 8181, you would change the value to look like this:

- WEBUI_PORT=8181
- 8181:8080

Once the stack is deployed, you can go to: http://your-server-ip:8080 (change the port in the URL as needed) and access your qBittorrent installation.

That’s it! You’re set to go!
